Wounds That Don’t Heal In Diabetics.?
My sister-in-law has a history of diabetes. The wound on the side of the thumb nail did not heal. It’s been months until the color of his toenail is blackened. He often complained of pain but only overcame it by using an antiseptic solution and did not want to be examined for fear of being “behind”. Is that really related to his diabetes history? What possibilities can arise if left unchecked? We are still looking for ways that he wants to see it directly to the doctor. Thanks.
Sores on the tips of the nails can be caused by various causes. One of the causes that can cause injury to the nail can be caused by a paronychia. Paronychia or commonly referred to as cantengan can occur either on the fingers or toes. Paronychia occurs due to pressure or piercing of the nail to the edge, causing infection. Paronychia can cause symptoms such as pain on the tip of the nails, redness, swelling, and can produce odorous pus.

some other causes that can cause a state of injury to the tip of the toe such as:
Therefore, it is recommended that your brother-in-law immediately consult a doctor, so that the doctor can examine the state of the wound directly, and do a blood sugar check. In addition, it is necessary to clean the wound from the doctor so that the wound is cleaner and accelerates healing. If the wound is left, the spread of infection can occur and can cause sepsis (bacteria spread throughout the body).
